Robert J. Sawyer, a past presenter who will return this year to SiWC, spoke to a standing-room-only audience on Monday night at White Dwarf bookstore in Kits.
I arrived a bit late to find him already reading from his new book WAKE (he did not read from a copy of the book, but actually from his Blackberry, as you can see in the picture). There was no room left to sit, and the house was packed and rivetted to him throughout the reading. A lively question period followed.
Sawyer continues his tour across the country for the next couple of weeks. I know he signed a pile of books at White Dwarf -- if you'd like a copy they may have one or two left. If not -- you'll have to wait until the fall, when there will plenty of chances to get him to sign at SiWC 2009!
